Caesium Iodide (Cesium Iodide) is the material with the deepest known IR transmission, and is sometimes used for components in the widest range spectrophotometers. An extremely soft material, Cesium Iodide is extremely difficult to polish, and so performance is compromised for range. Doped with Thallium, CsI(Tl) is a useful scintillator which emits at a wavelength that is a good match for Silicon photodiodes. Arrays of Cesium Iodide are used in security imaging systems.
